    I am always interested in memoirs by famous people Tracking their path to fame is usually enlightening and entertaining.I ve found that books by comics are particularly difficult to read So much of their entertainment value comes from non verbal communications This was true of Cho as well The book felt flat to me, and it was disjointed, jumping from timeframe to timeframe with no particular rhyme or reason While many of the anecdotes conveyed were interesting, I had trouble following along I am always interested in memoirs by famous people Tracking their path to fame is usually enlightening and entertaining.I ve found that books by comics are particularly difficult to read So much of their entertainment value comes from non verbal communications This was true of Cho as well The book felt flat to me, and it was disjointed, jumping from timeframe to timeframe with no particular ...

    Margaret Cho expands upon the material of her popular stand up routine and film of the same name in this memoir Less outrageously funny and downright sad in many instances, Cho writes about her lonely childhood and the odd jobs she worked at the beginning of h...

    I was a bit disappointed that it was forgotten so easily, but I learned something very important that day When you are on a stage and you wave, people wave back This information would become very important for me later on I was stoic, silent, nonviolent even back then I didn t pay attention But I stayed at that same school for fiveyears, which is forever when you are a kid, and I must admit, it wore me down I think I lost something there an interior brightness The luster and the I was a bit disappointed that it was forgotten so easily, but I learned something very important that day When you are on a stage and you wave, people wave back This information wo...

    The book begins with some very painful childhood experiences she was not just bullied, she was reviled Even at a church sponsored summer camp, she was traded off by girls who should have been her friends, but sought social acceptance by joining in Margaret s Moran s humiliation There are no adults around to intercede Her parents seem to agree with the world s negative opinion of her It is no surprise that she drops flunks out of school and finds companionship among those in society s The book begins with some very painful childhood experiences she was not just bullied, she was reviled Even at a church sponsored summer camp, she was traded off by girls who should have been her friends, but sought social acceptance by joining in Margaret s Moran s humiliation There are no adults around to intercede Her parents seem to agree with the world s negative opinion of her It is no surprise that she drops flunks out of school and finds companionship among those in society s other outcast groups.There are many raw examples of what was wrong with her life For this reason, the book is probably censored away from the many badgered and taunted teenage girls who could use these reality lessons to understand the dynamics that are working against them Margaret figures it out finally after some real hard knocks lessons.I read this in succession with Steve Martin s memoir about his stand up career Bor...

    I really like Margaret Cho, and I liked the idea of this book, mostly from the self empowerment title It wasn t exactly what I was expecting Less funny, and a lotdark and depressing A lot of the book focuses on her addiction to drugs and alcohol, and her self image issues And if it was a fictional book, I would probably have got frustrated with her as a protagonist and told her to get over it But it was real, and she really went through it, and I can see why some people are put off th I really like Margaret Cho, and I liked the idea of this book, mostly from the self empowerment title It wasn t exactly what I was expecting Less funny, and a lotdark and depressing A lot of the book focuses on her addiction to drugs and alcohol, and her self image issues And if it was a fictional book, I would probably have got frustrated with her as a protagonist and told her to get over it But it was real, and she really went through it, and I can see why some people are put off the book because of it.However, the ending justified it all it was the self empowerment that I was looking for My only complaint is that it felt like the final two chapters were tacked on the end as a last minute afterthought, 10 pages to lighten the mood after 150 pages of darkness and misery.Luckily, for me it still worked for the most part The only part I found a struggle was the last 40 or so pages By that point, I was ready for her to be ov...

    I m the one that I want by Margaret Cho is one of the funniest books I ve read It s a halarious story of how she was raised by drag queens, was thrown into show business, and how cruel the real world can be Cho shows her true strength in how she was able to over come critical managers, tv directors, and her audience When she was very young she starred in a tv show about being Asian in America Everything was going well until she was informed by her manager that she was too fat to play hers I m the one that I want by Margaret Cho is one of the funniest books I ve read It s a halarious story of how she was raised by drag queens, was thrown into s...

    The written version of Cho s fabulously funny and now classic one woman show, this book is alternately hilarious and excruciating A lot of the material will be familiar to those who know Cho s act though she left out the lesbian cruise Where s MY parade bit WHY , but there s also lots and lots and lots and lots of Cho s struggles with body issues, with drugs, with disastrously low self esteem I appreciate that Cho went through all of that, and that she overcame it, but it is painful The written version of Cho s fabulo...
